Wykład gościnny

03.10.2018

On Friday, October 12, 2018, IFA would like to invite you to join us at a guest lecture on trauma comics titled “The Risk of Exposure and the Limits of Empathy: Mobilizing the Pathos of Vulnerability in Trauma Comics” by an auto/biography, translation and comics scholar, prof. Eva C. Karpinski from York University, Canada. To reflect on the tangled relationship between vulnerability, traumatic memory, resistance, and transnational empathy, prof. Karpinski will discuss three graphic narratives: Safe Area Gorazde (2011) by Joe Sacco; UNeducation Volume 1: A Residential School Graphic Novel (2014) by Jason Eaglespeaker; and Drawing the Line: Indian Women Fight Back (2015) by Priya Kuriyan et al. which show that, unlike traditional verbal translations that struggle with the problem of incommensurability of language in the face of traumatic circumstances, the graphic medium of comics can function as a more suitable transmitter of the difficult knowledge and affective registers of trauma, communicating them through visual objects as much as words.
